Madhya Pradesh High Court makes it mandatory for anyone filing a case to appoint a local lawyer

On November 11, 2020, Madhya Pradesh High Court had passed an order directing that, when a case will be field, it is now mandatory to appoint a local lawyer, and without appointing a local lawyer if a case is being filed then that particular case will be dismissed and will fall under incomplete category. District Bar President and Secretary both have supported this particular order and also suggested that this particular step should also be taken by the District Courts. In this pandemic situation many advocates are facing financial crisis and it is very important to implement this type of decisions.

On the direction of Chief Justice Sanjay Yadav and Registrar General Rajendra Kumar Wani, the Secretary and State Bar Member of High Court Bar Association, Jabalpur, have issued this order. A letter had been submitted by an executive member of High Court Bar Association and in that letter he requested for appointment of a local counsel when a new case will be filed in the High Court.

The letter states that, according to Section 3 of High Court Rules, 2008, it is mandatory for a party to appoint a local counsel if that party has appointed a lawyer from outside Jabalpur, Indore or Gwalior.

Due to this pandemic situation, advocates who are residing outside the area are filing cases through e-filing and pleading through video conferencing which violates Section 3 of High Court Rules, 2008. Hence, the Madhya Pradesh High Court held that, appointment of a local lawyer is mandatory when a new case is being filed.
